Themes: Digital words
Dot is a bright little girl – you can tell just by looking at her picture on the cover – and she knows all about the digital world – tapping and tweeting, surfing and swiping and talking and talking and talking. Then Mum says ‘go outside Dot – time to Reboot! Recharge! Restart!’ and when Dot gets through the door she remembers there is another meaning to all the digital words but a place for them all in her modern world. This is a simply told story that makes its point in a cheerful and memorable way with easy text and really great images.
